Count Your Life

It's Shirley posting today! It is that time of year where summer is winding down and fall is heading our way, here in the States.

We already have leaves falling from the trees and I am seeing lots of deer in the woods behind my house. As I view my card, I definitely see a look of fall.  I am not ready for fall because I know a cold winter follows next.

I started off using black card stock to cut my step card base.  I proceeded to cut the main pieces of my card using Graphic 45 French Country designer paper.

I used the Impression Obsession Small Grass Border for my greenery. I adhered it to the card. I used the Impression Obsession Bare Tree die to cut the tree out of black card stock, and attached it to the card.  I cut the Impression Obsession Small Deer from  brown card stock, and adhered them to the card.

I used a small circle punch to cut the sun and sponged it with deep orange ink. I decided the tree needed something extra and used a butterfly punch to add the butterflies. I cut small squares from the Graphic 45 French Country paper pad.

I used small punches to for my Life letters  and adhered them to the steps with glue. I have used glue dots for this before, but I have found that the glue holds them in place much better. 

I used the Spellbinders Classic Large Scalloped Ovals die to cut the oval that is placed under the plain oval.  I used a sentiment from the JustRite Botanical Medallions stamp set. To finish up my card,  I fussy cut part of a sunflower from the Graphic 45 French Country paper pad. 

Thanks, for viewing my card today.  Come back tomorrow to see another fabulous card designed by one of my Classy Cards 'n Such team mates.
